For instance, the yummy banana. Introduced to the US in 1876 at the Philadelphia Centennial it was very expensive - $2 a banana. In spite of this, they became very popular as we all know. Boston Fruit, eventually to be Chiquita, decided to grow bananas in Central America. To do this they had to clear-cut forests and build rail lines. Lives were lost, people were hurt. Then to read that the US sponsored overthrow of Jacobo Arbenz was backed by Chiquita because he had the nerve to ask them to pay fair prices for land in Guatemala! And I thought Chiquita was just a cute lady with a fruit topped hat.
I have stopped eating animal products due to the awful things done to animals, now I have to worry about awful things done to people that grow my food? Will I be reduced to just water and air. Except in the same damn magazine is an article about how we use too much water, the world is running out of water and don't get me started on the air.
Where does it end?
